News from the Lunch Room
We would like to thank Paul Kristensen this week for his most generous and delicious donation of over 300lbs. of beef to the Hot Lunch Program.  The students enjoyed Taco Pie this week and recipes to come will feature this fresh and nutritious protein.
The Hot Lunch Program is working with our Farm to School committee to promote our local foods and to continue to provide fresh, delicious and most importantly nutritious food to our students.  It is so important to make healthy food choices and knowing where your food is coming from is such a benefit.
The Farm to School Program is always looking for volunteers.  This committee has some wonderful plans for the future here at Newton and how exciting it will be to be a part of!
If you would like more info please contact me and as always please feel free to contact me with any ideas of fruits and/or veggies you would like to see the kids trying.  My email address is ghewes@newtonschool.org
